Sinterklaas went home today...

Sinterklaas went home today... He took his horse and Zwarte Pieten and all his empty sacks on his steamer and is now on his way back to Spain where he will hide in his secret castle for the coming year... especially in summer he is very careful that Dutch children on vacation in Spain don't find out where he lives!

Last night we celebrated his birthday. Because Anne and Lennart don't believe anymore they were responsable of thinking of a way to let Marlijn know that Sinterklaas brought the presents to our house. At the end of our dinner Anne went outside, Marlijn didn't even notice it... Suddenly we heard a loud knocking on the front window, shortly followed by the sound of something thrown into the mailbox. Marlijn's eyes turned big and we went to get the letter. It was a poem saying that Sinterklaas was so busy he couldn't stay but he left the presents in the house and we just had to go and find them.
We found them upstairs in a closet and the kids were soooo excited!!! Of course there were way to much presents, it took ages to unwrap them all and read all the poems. But we had fun and the kids loved every single present they got... it was a great Sinterklaas evening.
It was after 10.30p.m. that they were all a sleep...
So that was Sinterklaas, but who thinks that party time is over now is wrong - tomorrow is Lennart's birthday!!!
